4 The Tween

Tween

 

This is the latest bit of Bealoo art, which is my foray into art for tweens.  I don’t know anything about tweens, since I don’t have one of my own.  My first child that will approach “tweendom” is a boy, and I’m pretty convinced he won’t give a flying fig about what is up on his wall.   I created this art with the assumption that girls may be different.    They are out of the princess phase and into goodness knows what, but I figure you can’t go wrong with some hearts and flowers and frilly sayings about love.  My 13 year old niece checked them out and wanted them on her walls, so I must be on the right track!  You can find these prints in the Bealoo Kids Store

Our Gallery

Mia_Gallery

 

We are a number of years into having a full art gallery stuck to the front of our fridge.  I am having to triage some of the more uninspired pieces into the recycling bin, once they are a couple of weeks old.  That’s how quickly new art accumulates!  My sons are now older, and less inclined to be such prolific art producers, but since kindergarten started for my daughter, the amount of artwork coming home has increased tenfold.  In an effort to become a better curator,  I’ve opened up a gallery on my daughter’s wall.  It’s a great way to show of your child’s art  without spoiling your walls with sticky tape.  Essentially it’s a clothes line hung from one side of the room to the other.  I picked up some colored clothes pegs at a local grocery store,  which are perfect for fastening the art onto the line.   A great way to show off your little one’s imagination!

Trendy Owls

Owl_art

  Owls have been around in art for a long time.  I remember my aunt had a macrame piece of owl art hanging in her basement, and my mother in law still has a set a ceramic owls on her bathroom counter that I’m sure have been around for decades.  The last trend seemed to […]

Artificial Intelligence

Robots

  I have been thinking a lot about robots lately, ever since my son became the proud owner of a Lego NXT kit for his last birthday.  The kit is pretty nifty and allows your child to build robotic like contraptions programmed very basically with some computer software.   There have been some  cool things […]

Fairies Redux

DancersSketch

  I don’t have a tween girl  (at least not for a few years!), so I’m not sure if they’ll dig them, but at the very least these are geared towards a slightly older child than my other fairy art.  You can find these fairy prints listed in the Bealoo store.

More Fairies!

No doubt about it, girls love fairies!  I’ve had many requests to paint a few more and here is the first one from a set of three I’ve been working on.  No title yet.  Any thoughts? I’ll be adding this the the store once the other two pieces are finished.

Put a Name on It!

Name prints

  A number of people had suggested I come up with a line of designs that could used as name plaques to hang on doors – or wherever!  I completed this set of personalized prints awhile ago, but was waiting to see how popular they might be before adding them to the Bealoo Kids website. […]

Little Dresses!

  I’m still wild over Gelli Plate printing!  Last week I posted a set that I completed of birds.  This week I’ve moved onto dresses on a clothes line, which I was inspired to do for the simple reason that a dress seemed really easy to cut out.  For these prints I cut out a […]

Gelli Plates!

bird prints

I am so in love with my Gelli Plates.  They have brought me countless hours of wasted time while I figure out how to use them, but they are so addictive and fun!  Here are two of the latest prints that I’ve created.  I’ve been waiting all winter for my garden to grow so that […]

Love To Dance!

Little Girls

I think my daughter has the dancing gene.  How else can I explain this obsession with her second hand ballet shoes and dress up tutus after growing up with a couple of brothers?  I do, in fact, sometimes feel bad that she doesn’t have many “girl” things.  I am hoping to skip over most of […]
